Boost Plus for Calories and Protein during Treatment or an Ilness

I'd never heard of the drink called Boost Plus. According to the Novartis site that has a profile of it, this nutrition supplement product is aimed at individuals who are suffering an illness or are undergoing fairly serious treatment such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy or even treatment for HIV.

Boost Plus comes in a bottle, sized to an eight ounce serving. This is a fairly small container if you consider the fact that a soda can holds twelve ounces. However, despite this, Boost Plus contains 360 calories and 14 grams of protein. For weight gain, or to hold one's weight in check during a time when an illness might result in weight loss, this is fairly significant.

According to the Novartis site, Boost Plus also contains the mineral selenium, a well known antioxidant and a fair amount of calcium, which more and more is being found by medical researchers to be an absolute necessity in one's daily diet.
